Pownal Elementary School







If you need a copy of the 2014-15 school calendar, you can pick one up in the office or click on this link.

Don't forget, our last day of school is Friday, June 19th and we will be dismissing at 11:45. Weather permitting, our school-wide field day will be on Thursday, June 18th.

We all want to wish our Ms. Slattery a fantastic retirement. She will surely be missed by all of Pownal Elementary. She has not only been a terrific teacher but a friend to all of us. You will be missed!!!!
